Hola otra vez,
many interesting things happened this week. we forgot to change the clock in our car yesterday, so we arrived to dinner a half hour late, after a drop-by invited us in for dinner. then the bishop's wife chased my companion around the dinner table, because he wanted to put his dishes in the sink by himself. then when we drove by one way to a member's house, we saw a car parked on the side of the road, with its door open and a person laying on the ground by the car. after we set up an appointment with the members, we went back the way we came and when the person was still on the ground we stopped to see if we could help. at first we weren't sure if he was alive, but i saw him breathing, so we shook his shoulder and woke him up. when we helped him up, he couldn't stand still, he was so drunk. we left after getting a promise that he wouldn't be driving.
we dropped one of our investigators in a part-member, in-active family, who kept on cancelling appointments on us, for about the past month. on Thursday we stopped by and set up an appointment for 7 the next day, but Friday morning, she texted and said she was in Juarez, so she wouldn't be home. we stopped by at about 2 anyway, and guess what? she was home! her mother-in-law called her out to the door, and we acted like we hadn't received her message, and she said everything was still good with our appointment at 7. So we came back later, with a member, and when we knocked a light turned off and no one answered. so we called and she picked up. but when my companion said, "somos los misioneros!" (we are the Missioneries) she hung up. then we texted her and asked if she was really interested, and she said no. we told all we wanted to do was help her have god in her life, and she said she was christian so she did have god in her life. That's when we stopped texting and dropped her. fun times!
we have had problems with our appointments cancelling and not showing up all week, a couple days, all of our appointments cancelled. but when we went on exchanges, only one of our appointments fell through, and we had great lessons, with the appointments and a couple drop-bys with in-actives. our week has started to turn around.
we have big plans for this week, which include getting four investigators on baptismal date, and getting a ton of new investigators.
remember that at least 2 people love you all, this missionary, and the Lord,
